In New Orleans, even the dogs parade for Mardi Gras

And for the third year in a row, Murphy and Belle joined thousands of other dogs on a beautiful Sunday afternoon for a stroll through the French Quarter.

And this year, Paige came along and Belle asked to walk her. Paige is one of Belle's favorite humans.

Many people pulled wagons filled with throws and dog treats. Murphy being Murphy, he just walked alongside other people's wagons and helped himself to the treats.

Belle tended to beg a bit more ladylike.

But Murphy...

Give that dog credit--he knows what he wants and he gets it.

They were loved and adored by legions of dog fans.

And the scenery was good.

Once home, there was sleeping to be done. All paraded out.


  1. Thanks for the photos and the commentary. It seems that fun was had by all.

  2. Hey Murphy;

    Man looks like the parade was fun and yes some of the scenery was very nice to look at. I am sure that that was totally not in your decision to participate, LOL And Murphy is Murphy, that is the one constant.

  3. That does look like a good time. The closest thing we have to that in my part of Appalachia is a 4H hog show, not in the same class at all :-(

  4. So hard to believe what Murphy was when you first got him.

  5. Looks like a good time was had by all!

  6. Belle has good taste.

  7. Murphy is not bashful for sure
